    Greetings in Christ!

    On this pilgrimage we will meet Saints you heard about growing up. Remember St. Catherine Labouré and the Miraculous Medal, St. Vincent de Paul, St. John Vianney, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, and St. Thérèse, the Little Flower? This pilgrimage will allow these Saints to inspire you all the more as we see and visit the places and the culture where they lived.

    We will also visit the beaches of Normandy on July 4th, to pray and remember those who lost their lives there, those who served our country in World War II, and for those who presently serve us in the armed forces ensuring us the freedom we have today. We will allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us through one another. On a pilgrimage we not only pray with each other and share the Eucharist around The Table of the Lord, but we also share around a table with food and drink of the region (and most of us have heard of the gastronomical delights of French food and wine!) Another highlight will be the conclusion of our pilgrimage in Lourdes, a most fitting place for our veneration of Mary as Mother of our earthly pilgrimage.

    I hope you will join us as we visit Lisieux, Mt. St. Michel, Alencon, Chartres, Paris, and Lourdes...it promises to be a rewarding and memorable journey for all. Please prayerfully consider joining Franciscan University of Steubenville on a holy pilgrimage that will bless you and bring you abundant grace
